Bad Day at Work
Jennifer Steinhauer And Helene Cooper
Yield 1 drink
High-quality gin, clementine orange juice and a generous splash of seltzer make this cocktail just the thing after a stressful day at the office.
Featured in: No Eggnog Allowed.
1 cup sugar
1 ½ ounces Bluecoat or other high-quality gin
4 ounces clementine orange juice (from about 3 to 5 clementines)
Generous splash of seltzer
1. Fill a tumbler with crushed ice and set aside.
2. Make simple syrup: In a small saucepan, mix the sugar with 1 cup water. Simmer over low heat until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool, about 5 minutes.
3. In a shaker, combine the gin and orange juice with 1 teaspoon simple syrup. (Remaining syrup can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.) Shake well, and pour into the tumbler. Top with a splash of seltzer, add a stirrer and serve.
